    The latest Harvard-Harris poll has nothing but bad news for Democrats. The chances are you didn’t hear about this because you and I were not supposed to know what the results were. In spite non-stop attacks, Donald Trump’s approvals is up to 47% which is +2 in a month. Trump is proving that, whatever doesn’t kill him (and there doesn’t seem to be anything that can) has made him stronger. By 69/ 31 Americans see the economy as strong. By 68/26 Americans are saying their personal financial situation is strong and improving. Trump’s approval on creating jobs is much higher...

    Immigration has emerged as the number one issue for voters in the midterm elections, surpassing both the economy and health care as the policy area that will most determine how votes are cast, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday. The poll, conducted between June 28 and July 2, found that fifteen percent of registered voters named immigration as the issue that will most significantly impact how they cast their vote, while fourteen percent said the economy was their top priority. Immigration first became a top issue for voters in May after the Trump administration rolled out its “zero tolerance”...
  • Dem nightmare deepens as party is 'underperforming' among Hispanics

    Golly gee, it turns out that race-baiting and fear-mongering aren't paying off for the Democrats and that Hispanic voters are not universally motivated by the call of open borders. Josh Kraushaar reports for the National Journal: Democrats counting on President Trump's hard-line immigration policies to spark energized Hispanic turnout and a wave against GOP candidates in this year's midterms will be surprised to see what's transpiring. Even during the heat of the family-separation crisis, Democrats are underperforming in heavily Hispanic constituencies, from GOP-held border battlegrounds in Texas to diversifying districts in Southern California to the nation's most populous Senate battleground...
  • Backfire: Trump soars 5 points in IBD/TIPP poll after Democrats go rabid

    Are Democrats the biggest idiots alive? A new poll from IBD/TIPP (the most reliable, by the way) shows that President Trump has soared five fat points in the wake of Democrats' ragefest against him over illegal immigration. Our president is looking more presidential to the voters, and the left seems to be eating itself. Seriously, many warnings have gone out that Democrats staking their future on open borders, hollering about 'the children' isn't working at all. As Trump soars, it turns out they're digging their own grave. Investor's Business Daily's John Merline writes: Increasingly bitter and aggressive attacks on President...

    Democrat hate speech targeting deplorables has always worked -- on their own voters. Libeling Republicans as racist, homophobic morons has kept Democrat voters in line. President Trump laughs at their insults, and just gets stronger. Suddenly, one more Trump success. The Democrat line is breaking. Our minorities are breaking free. President Trump’s off the charts achievements on jobs and security are improving the lives of every single Democrat identity voting bloc. A small, but increasingly significant number are noticing. With his MAGA gains on the economy and foreign affairs, President Trump is slowly chipping away at the Democrat Party’s foundations....
  • Poll: Trump Gains Minority Support from Growing Economy

    06/29/2018 11:01:04 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 22 replies
    Rising optimism on the economy among racial minorities is boosting President Donald Trump’s chances in 2018, says a poll by Zogby Analytics. “Even though President Trump receives little support from these groups, things might be going just good enough economically that he can scrape enough support from these groups so that Republicans can retain control of Congress and Trump gets re-elected in 2020,” said the June 27 report by Zogby Analytics. The racial groups are vital to the Democratic Party’s elite-led raucous coalition of minorities, and any decline in their 2018 turnout could cripple Democrats’ hope of regaining power in...
  • Poll (Zogby): Black, Asian, Hispanic support enough to help Trump win re-election

    06/29/2018 5:10:01 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 40 replies
    some Asian and Hispanic likely voters think things are going good economically, and are optimistic about their personal finances the next four years,” said Zogby. And Zogby found the same among African Americans. For example, among blacks, only 25 percent said the economy would do well the next four years. But when it came to their personal situation, 46 percent said their finances would be better. The poll analysis added, “A quarter of African Americans say their finances are better off than compared to four years ago and 46 percent think their finances will be better in four years.”

    President Trump’s approval rating has ticked up to 47 percent in the new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill, a 2 point hike from last month. Trump’s approval rating was lifted in part by a 10 point climb among Hispanic voters. His approval rating rose by 6 points among Republicans and by 4 points among Democrats compared to last month’s poll. According to the same poll, Trump’s approval rating reached its highest point last year, at 49 percent.

    Breitbart ^ | June 28,2018 | John Nolte
    In the heart of the media’s hoax-narrative about President Trump’s separation of illegal alien families at the border, Trump’s approval ratings with Hispanics jumped ten points, according to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll. The “hoax” in the establishment media’s narrative is, of course, the phony outrage over the phony pretense that Trump’s separation policies are any different from those of former President Obama. (They are not.) The media fabricated this narrative out of whole cloth as a way to blot out the fallout over the FBI’s devastating inspector general’s report and the congressional hearings that followed. Nevertheless, this poll, which...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is combining with resentment over the cheating of Bernie Sanders out of the 2016 presidential nomination to lead the Democratic Party toward an embrace of angry radicalism, which will result in rejection by voters on November 8.  Bill Clinton, who led his party to victory in the 1990s with moderation ("triangulation"), apparently sees the danger of the party repulsing mainstream Americans and gaining status as a radical minority, successful only in big cities. Yesterday, he went on the little watched late-night program hosted by Trump-hating Trevor Noah and averred a "lot of respect" for the way Sarah...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 20, 2018 10:02 AM | Paul Bedard
    In a stunning turnaround sparked by the improving economy and last December’s tax cuts, over 95 percent of manufacturers have turned bullish about their future, an all-time record. A new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers found that 95.1 percent of manufacturers have a “positive outlook for their companies.” That is the highest outlook number in the 20-year history of the group’s Outlook Survey. The report, said the group, comes on the six-month anniversary of passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and amid reports that manufacturers are increasing wages, hiring, and capital investments. “This record optimism is...

    President Donald Trump's approval rating has hit 45 percent, tied with his highest rating to date, according to Gallup Last week Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a historic summit in Singapore, while his administration has begun a strict crackdown on illegal immigration into the U.S., including separating children from their parents if found illegally crossing the border. Despite the controversy over his policies, Trump's approval rating has steadily increased since the end of May. 45 percent of Americans approve of Trump. 50 percent of Americans disapprove. Trump previously reached 45 percent approval in the week...

    Satisfaction with the direction the country is going is higher today than it's been since 2005, according to the most recent Gallup survey. Thirty-eight percent of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the United States today, similar to last month's 37% satisfaction rate but marking the numerical high since a 39% reading in September 2005. The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year – a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016). Satisfaction with the nation...

    PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Koreans are getting a new look at President Donald Trump. They see him shaking hands with Kim Jong Un at their historic summit in Singapore, and even awkwardly saluting a three-star general. It's a far cry from the "dotard" label their government slapped on him last year. Previously, even on a good day, the best he might get was "Trump." No honorifics. No signs of respect. Now, he's being called "the president of the United States of America." Or "President Donald J. Trump." Even "supreme leader." The post-summit transformation of North Korea's official version...

    RealClearPolitics, which keeps track of polling averages, has some worrying news for Democrats and liberals who were counting on a “blue wave” to sweep them in to power in Congress this November. Since the beginning of this year, more or less, a clear trend has emerged: President Trump's approval rating has gradually risen, while Democrats' lead on the “generic ballot” question in national polls (that asks whether respondents would be more likely to vote for a Democratic or Republican candidate for Congress) has been steadily shrinking. To bring these numbers into sharper perspective, Trump's average approval rating hit a low...
